DIY 01: Halloween Mason Jar Luminaries
This is a pretty simple craft that the kids can get in on. Start with gathering mason jars of various sizes. If you don’t have any, grab a bunch here or here. First, clean the jars and wipe down with rubbing alcohol so that the paint will stick. Next, paint the outside of the mason jars with one layer of acrylic paint (like this). Then, using a sharpie, outline some faces onto the jars before painting over with black acrylic paint. Alternatively, you can purchase face stickers like these instead of painting them on. Allow the jars to dry completely before spraying with a glaze (like this). To turn the jars into true luminaries, add a tea light candle (or these flameless tea lights). And ta-da! You’re done!
